Another year has passed and again we present for your 
consideration a report of the receipts, expenditures and finan- 
cial standing of the town. 

The expenditures in the school department are in excess 
of last 3 7 ear owing to the building of the new school house on 
Spring street. The school committee think that the appro- 
priations for the coming year should be larger than they were 
the past year, the reasons for which will probably appear in 
their report. 

The amount expended for current expenses is considerably 
less than last year, although quite extensive repairs have been 
made upon the town house, the roof of which is in a bad con- 
dition at the present time, caused by the paper under the 
shingles holding the moisture and thereby destroying the 
boarding of the roof. It will be necessary in a few years to 
replace the whole roof. 

The bills for street lights are some larger than last year, 
but when we take into consideration the fact that the number 
of kerosene lights have been increased from 86 to 111, making 
in all with the gas lights 123, an increase over last year of 
25, we think the town will feel amply compensated for the 
extra outlay. 

There has been added to the fire department during the 
year a new engine and a new lot of hose so that they are quite 
well prepared for any emergency. The matter of the reservoir 



42 IPSWICH TOWN REPORT. 

at the head of Central street remains the same as last year, 
the leakage still remaining and the two hundred dollars is 
still retained. 

In the highway department there has been considerable 
new work, for which there was no special appropriation. 

They were as follows : Rebuilding the bridge at Willow- 
dale, building of Peatfield street and Mount Pleasant street. 

The bills for snow have been very small, leaving thereby 
quite a large balance at the end of the fiscal year which had 
been reserved for that purpose, a part of which has been ap- 
plied to the repairing of the roads since Feb. 1. 

In accordance with the provisions of Chap. 98, Acts of 
1889, the board of selectmen will be obliged as soon after the 
annual meeting as may be to appoint some suitable person to 
be superintendent of streets, at which time the terms of office 
of the present surveyors will expire and their duties will de- 
volve upon said superintendent unless the town accepts the 
provisions of Chap. 158, Acts of 1871. 

The balance against the town in the poor department is 
some larger than last year, owing partly to the increase in 
expense at the Danvers Lunatic Hospital. At the present 
time we have no one there, those there having been removed 
to the Alms house. 

Affairs at the farm remain in as good or better shape than 
at the last report. The crops were favorable and the balance 
against the farm is considerably less than it has been for 
years. The report of the State Board of Lunacy and Charity, 
which has created considerable excitement in different parts of 
the state, speaks quite favorably of the almshouse at Ipswich, 
although'the visitor does not seem to have been very particu- 
lar in her observations as she speaks of the almshouse as be- 
ing built of wood with a brick basement. The whole number 
of inmates at the farm the past year was 13 ; the average num- 
ber 9 1-5 ; the present number is 11. 

The outlay by the town for the support of the poor on the 
farm amounts to $1.96 per week for each person so supported. 

The boundary line question between this town and the 
town of Essex and city of Gloucester has been referred by the 
Legislature to the Harbor and Land Commissioners instruct- 
ing them to define said lines and report to the next General 
Court. The vexed question seems to be in a fair way for ad- 
justment. 



IPSWICH TOWN REPORT. 43 

The case of the Proprietors of Jeffries Neck pasture vs. the 
town of Ipswich has been heard before a Master and argued 
before Judge Devens of the Supreme Court. His decision has 
not yet been given. We have reason to believe the case "will be 
referred back to the Master to be re-opened and evidence fav- 
orable to the town, but excluded by him at the former hear- 
ing, admitted. 

In accordance with the provisions of Sect. 7, Chap. 37, 
Public Statutes, which require selectmen of towns to have 
copied any records of the town which may have become worn, 
mutilated or illegible your selectmen have secured the services 
of Mr. Nathaniel R. Farley who is now engaged in copying 
the older records which are badly worn and some of them 
almost illegible. 

The selectmen submit the following estimates for the en- 
suing year: 

For schools, $7500; for current expenses, $8500 ; for high- 
ways, $5000; for reduction of the town debt, $800. 

Respectfully submitted, 

LUTHER WAIT; ) Selectmen

AUDITOR'S REPORT. 
I hereby certify that I have examined the accounts of all 
such Officers of the town of Ipswich as are entrusted with the 
receipt and expenditure of money and all original bills and 
vouchers on which money has been paid from the treasury of 
said Town, and find them correct. I have also examined the 
books and accounts of the Town Treasurer and find them 
correct, and that the amount of uncollected taxes ($2677.59) 
and cash ($4304.14) in his hands is as stated in the annual 
Town Report for the current year. 

NATHANIEL R. FARLEY, Auditor. 
Ipswich, Feb. 20, 1890. 



CORRECTION. 
The total amount paid for fees and salaries should be 
$2905.25, instead of $2904.25, as printed.

AUDITOR'S REPORT. 

The undersigned, chosen at the last annual town meet- 
ing to audit the accounts of the town of Ipswich for the fis- 
cal year ending February 1, 1891, having attended to that 
duty begs leave to report, that he finds the accounts here- 
with submitted to the inhabitants of the town to be correct, 
and all drafts upon the treasury properly vouched. 

He takes this occasion to extend thanks to the clerk of 
the board of selectmen, Mr. N. R. Farley, and also to the 
treasurer of the to wn, Mr. J. Sargent, for courtesies shown 
while in pursuance of his labor, which not only helped to ex- 
pedite his work, but to make the task less onerous, and less 
irksome, than it would otherwise have been.

One Reservoir at the head of Mineral street. 

One Reservoir near the house of J. F. G. Clark. 

One Reservoir at the head of Central street. 

One Reservoir on Washington street, head of Gravel street. 

One Reservoir near the public library. 

Ore Reservoir in Market square. 

We would recommend an appropriation for building two 
gates, one to be put in at the end of the bridge by Farley & 
Daniels' shoe factory, the other at the end of the bridge on 
Ham matt street near Graffum's shop. We also recommend 
an appropriation for painting and blinding the Warren En- 
gine house, as it needs very much, having had but one coat 
since it was built. Also for painting the Neptune and Tor- 
rent houses. 

We recommend building a hose tower on the rear end of 
the Neptune house, so that they can hang up their hose. 
Also to procure a bell for the Torrent house, the members 
living so far apart something is needed to give an alarm. 

We also recommend an appropriation to purchase about 
1500 feet of rubber lined hose, so we could have some in 
readiness while we are drying after being out to a fire, for it 
might happen that we should be in great need of it.

REPORT* OF EAGLE HILL CASE. 

To the Selectmen of Ipswich, 

Gentlemen: — At the request of Mr. Lord, I write you 
a brief account of the litigation between the Proprietors of 
Jeffries Neck Pasture and the Inhabitants of Ipswich. 

The litigation began by a petition under chap. 176 of 
the Public Statutes, brought by the corporation against the 
town. In that petition, the corporation alleged that it was 
the owner in fee of Eagle Hill, and in possession of the same, 
and that the town made some claim to the premises, and 
prayed that the town might be ordered to bring an action 



46 IPSWICH TOWN REPORT. 

to try the title to the premises. By the statute in question, 
it is provided that wherever a person is in possession of 
land, claiming the title to it, and another person also claims 
title, the one in possession may compel the other to bring 
an action to try the title. In the litigation that has been 
heretofore had, there has been no occasion to try the title to 
the tract of land in dispute, because the real ownership of 
the land is to be determined in subsequent proceedings. 

I was of the opinion that it would be difficult, if not im- 
possible, for the Jeffries Neck Corporation to prove their own 
title to the land in dispute, if it was forced to bring an action 
itself against the town. For that reason, I deemed it of vi- 
tal importance to prevent, if possible, the ordering of the 
town to bring an action against the corporation. 

After an answer was filed by the town, the case was re- 
ferred to a master, and a large number of hearings were had 
before him. Two hearings were had before Mr. Justice Dev- 
ens, and the case was argued before the Supreme Judicial 
Court at the last law term. The main positions taken in behalf 
of the defendant were first, that the plaintiff was not legally 
a corporation and therefore not entitled to bring a petition 
under this statute ; but the court held upon that point that 
if the corporation was improperly and irregularly formed in 
its beginning, after fifty years of corporate action it was too 
late to question its legal formation aid existence. The sec- 
ond position was that there was a mixed possession by the 
town and the corporation, but it was held, in the absence of 
am r corporate action b}^ the town, the occupation and pos- 
session of the inhabitants of the town, was rot ihe occupa- 
tion and possession of the town itself,, and that whatever 
was done just before the bringing the petition, in respect to 
removing gravel for the highway, was rather evidence of 
trespass than of possession. Eut the third position, upon 
which most reliance was placed, was that the land was 
owned by the stockholders of the corporation and not by 
the corporation itself, that it had always been taxed to the 
stockholders and not to the corporation, and passed by des- 
cent and devise from the stockholders to their heirs or devis- 
ees, and that if the town should bring a writ of entry against 
the corporation and maintain its rights, still the title of the 



IPSWICH TOWN REPORT. 47 

stockholders would remain, and that therefore, the town 
ought not to be compelled to bring an action against the 
corporation itself. This position, too, the court held not to 
be well taken, and decided that the ownership, if there was 
any ownership, of the land in dispute, was in the corpora- 
tion and not in its stockholders. 

The consideration and argument of these questions of 
law required a long and patient investigation. The decision 
of the Supreme Court is precisely this, — that unless within a 
certain time, to be fixed by a single Justice of the court, the 
town of Ipswich shall bring an action to maintain its rights 
to Eagle Hill, those rights shall be forever barred. The de- 
cision does not attempt to decide as to the real state of the 
title between the parties. Of course it is now open for the 
town to bring an action against the corporation to recover 
the land which is now in the possession of the corporation., 
In such an action the burden would be upon the town to 
prove its title. 

The title of the town, if it has any, depends upon the fol- 
lowing facts, as I understand it. The original title to all 
the land in Ipswich was in the commoners of Ipswich, who 
owned it at first as undivided land, and from time to time 
granted lots in severalty to some of their own number, or to 
others. In the year 1788, there still remained a portion of 
land undivided in the hands of the commoners of Ipswich, 
and in that year, the commoners of Ipswich made an abso- 
lute grant of all their real estate within the town of Ipswich 
to the town, upon certain conditions, and in the same year 
the town of Ipswich accepted the grant. There is some evi- 
dence that Eagle Hill was undivided property of the com- 
moners of Ipswich and passed under this grant to the town, 
but there is no evidence that the town, from that day until 
very recently ever took any corporate action whatever with 
reference to this tract. 

I ought to say that the rights of the clammers, so 
called, to occupy Eagle Hill as a place for building houses 
and landing boats and clams, was in no way involved in the 
decision of the court and rests upon entirely different 
grounds. The right of the inhabitants of the town of Ips- 
wich, if there is any, to use Eagle Hill as a way to a town 



48 IPSWICH TOWN REPORT. 



landing was not involved in the decision of the court. 

I do not pretend to give a full statement of the proceed- 
ings, but simply, at your request, have given an outline of 
them so that you may understand what has been done. 

Yours truly, 

William H. Moody. 



The expenditures for the support of our public schools 
have somewhat exceeded the appropriation, but an increase 
of scholars, and the establishment of another school, with 
other matters connected, has increased the expenses, and will 
probably be lully explained in the report of the School Com- 
mittee. 

It w T ill be seen that the current expense is larger than 

last year, but the increase was mainly for the payment of 
bills contracted in 188b), such as the painting oi the town 
house, the payment of the bills in the boundary- case, the Jef- 
iries Neck case, the water bills, the balance due for building a 
reservoir, the building a receiving tomb, together with anew 
iurnace at the town house, in all amounting to about $2300 
which will account for the increased expense in that depart- 
ment. 

The expense for highway's has been about $500 less than 
the appropriation, altnougn the expense lor snow has been 
rather more than usual. 

The average number of inmates at the Farm the past 
year was 11, the present number is 12. The cost of support 
of the poor at the farm has been $1.94 each per week. 

The report of the Harbor and Land Commissioners in 
the boundary line case has been made to the legislature, and 
it is hoped and believed that a final and satisfactory settle- 
ment ot the whole matter will soon be made. 

The Jeffries Neck case has been decided by the Supreme 
Court unfavorable to the town. We submit a letter from 
our counsel, William H. Mood} r , Esq., on the subject, and we 
have also inserted an article in the warrant calling the at- 
tention of the town to the case. 

The corporation tax which has been usually forwarded 
from the state in December, has not yet been received. By 



IPSWICH TOWN REPORT. 49 

the debt statement in the report, it will be seen that it would 
have added materially to the amount of cash on hand. 

The Selectmen submit the following estimates for the en- 
suing year: For schools $9000, for current expenses $850Q, 
for highways $5000, for reduction of the debt $800. These 
estimates are for the ordinary current expenses for the year. 
Any vote calling for an additional outlay of money, would 
also call for an increased appropriation by the town. 
Respectfully submitted,

One Reservoir in front of f . F. Ross, High street. 
One Reservoir at head of Mineral street. 
One Reservoir near house of J. F. G. Clark, High street. 
One Reservoir opposite J. Graffum's, Hammat street. 
Also a landing on the S. E. side of Choate's Bridge, and one 
opposite the Town Flail built by the Town for fire purposes. 

The Engineers have built a hose tower on the Neptune 
Engine house; have put a bell and tower on the Torrent's 
house, and constructed a reservoir on Hammatt street op- 
posite Graffum's carriage shop. They have also painted all 
the engine houses which was needed very much, and blinded 
the Warren House. 

Although we have had a good offer for the old Barni- 
eoat Engine we think it would be policy for the Town to 
keep it for the present as it is capable of doing good service 
yet in case of emergency. 

The Engineers would recommend the purchase of 1500 
feet rubber lined hose and disposing of 500 feet of the old 
leather hose now on hand. Also the purchase of coats for 
the Hook & Ladder men and for the hosemen of the several

and cementing the sides of well on High street near J. F. G.

POLICE REPORT. 
To the Board of Selectmen of the Town of Ipswich: 
The following is a list of the arrests made by the Board of 
Police of said town for the } T ear ending February 1st, 1892 : 

For assault 12 

For larceny 6 

For drunkeness 14 

For disturbing the peace 8 

For insanity 1 

For interfering with an officer in the discharge of his duty..l 

For loitering upon the sidewalk 2 

Fot- adultery 2 

For obstructing the highway 3 

Total 49 

Respectfully submitted 

CHARLES E. GOODHUE, 
« Chief of Police. 



The time has again arrived to present for \ r our consider- 
ation a report of the receipts, expenditures and financial 
standing of the town. 

Early in the \ T ear we were deprived of the assistance of 
our late associate, Mr. Curtis Damon, whose services were 
of great value; yet in the main his ideas have been carried 

out. 

The expenditures in the school department are in excess 
of the appropriations, which will probably be accounted for 

in their report. 

The amount expended for current expenses has been con- 
siderably less than last year. 

The "bills for street lights are somewhat larger than last 
year. 



IPSWICH TOWN REPORT. 43 

The whole number of inmates at the farm the past year 
was 15; average number 11^, the present number is 11. 
Taere are several reasons why the balance against the farm 
is larger than usual. There are several items of expense such 
as insurance and etc. which do not appear to the credit of 
the farm. The sales are somewhat less than usual. The 
building of the new barn has necessitated an increase in the 
ordinaiw amount of labor; the digging of the cellar, the 
teaming of the stone, lumber and other materials being 
done by the farm hands and teams. 

It is evident that the appraisal of English hay, 107 tons, 
taken Feb. 1st, 1891, was overestimated. It has since been 
disposed of and the shrinkage now appears against the pres- 
ent years credit. 

Notwithstanding the large expense incurred in building 
the barn at the farm, we have reduced the debt against the 
Town $1800, and have an increased balance in the hands of 
the Treasurer. 

The Selectmen estimate that the sum of $8500 will be 
sufficient for the ordinary expenses of the town for the en- 
suing year, also $1800 for taking up two notes becoming 
due this year, one of $800 and one of $1000, the last that 
are held against the town for the bridge and cemetery.

The Argilla School has been interrupted by sickness in 
both teacher and pupils. The Candlewood School has of 
late crowded the room. This school has had several good 
teachers ; but it appears as well at present as at any time 
for several years. The results justify the choice of a teach- 
er. The Appleton school dwindled to three at the close of 
the last term by reason of changes in population, and has 
been discontinued for the winter, to be revived in the spring, 
if found expedient. Of the pupils at Willowdale five belong 
in Hamilton and are accommodated for sake of former asso- 
ciation, and because it is no burden. The small number of 



9 

town pupils keeps it a serious question whether this school 
shall be either discontinued or consolidated with the Apple- 
ton. 

It is a matter of frequent observation that when pupils 

become qualified to enter more advanced schools, it is gener- 
ally for their interest to do so. A first rate teacher and a 
first rate pupil may make admirable progress anywhere. 
But the teachers of the larger schools are, generally speak- 
ing, examples of the survival of the fittest. There is also the 
means of stimulus from numbers, of making comparisons 
outside of self, and the beginnings of larger social acquain- 
tance. There is at headquarters a tendency toward consol- 
idation, that every year makes advances, and the strongest 
argument for it is found in the existence of becalmed or 
stuck-in-the-mud pupils. 

The Primary and out district schools have suffered ex- 
tensively from distempers and sickness. Otherwise they are 
prosperous. The teachers are the same, except one. Miss 
Mary E. Foster, an excellent teacher, has resigned from the 
Cogswell Primary. Miss Mabel Hodgkins, a graduate of 
the Training School at Newburyport, a substitute hitherto, 
handles her pupils well, and is a promising addition to the 
teaching force. 

On visiting the Dennison Primary we found three win- 
dows let down at recess to supplement the means for ventil- 
ation. The teacher reported it as necessary, "if you want 
pure air." The committee have taken the responsibility of 
trying an experiment that is no novelty, namely, of making 
at the Nortn School a chimney with an open fireplace in 
each room. This appears to accomplish as good results as 
the more elaborate and more expensive arrangement at the 
Dennison. 

The Intermediate Schools continue under the same teach- 
ers and in nearly an unchanged condition. The success and 
ability of the teachers are well known to the people of the 
town, and we need not add any commendation of them at 
this time. 



10 

After so many years of discussion with regard to educa- 
tional problems, it would seem as if something might be set- 
tled. But so far is this from being the truth that the num- 
ber of reforms suggested continues to increase, and 
the only consistent progress is in line of more extended 
preparation aad larger expenditure. We* admit that each 
generation does well to examine its own substructure. But 
we think that they make a mistake, who every time they 
look at a subject from a new point of view, rush into speech 
or print with suggestions of a change. The human mind is 
capable of a certain degree of effort, varying with the individ- 
ual. If the number of subjects claiming attention be en- 
larged, it must be at the expense of thoroughness in some. 
If an excess of thought be given to one, there must be a de- 
ficiency, in regard to another. Some one then observes this 
deficiency, and labors to bring about an opposite condition. 
The total amount of result remains the same. There is a 
perpetual recurrence of recompenses and compensations. 

The subject of Grammar is one that has given rise to 
frequent controversy. It is the science of language con- 
struction. And for the reason that language itself is the 
means through which the science of language must be taught, 
it cannot be taught exactly in the manner of arithmetic or 
geography. In those branches instruction may be from the 
beginning. But instruction in language presupposes a par- 
tial acquaintance with language. We learn our speech by 
example before we learn it on principle. The science of 
Grammar implies a knowledge of the art of Grammar. 
There was a science of arithmetic before the art was prac- 
tised. But Grammar is generalized from facts that existed 
before such a science was thought of. Hence the study of 
Grammar may well proceed by way of analysis rather than 
of theoretical construction. Now because this analysis 
made use of a terminology of its own ; and the whole com- 
prehensive value of the study did not reveal itself at once to 
young minds, a hue and cr} r arose against such an alleged 



11 

waste of time. The pupil was therefore forwarded to his 
destination by the route of language-lessons and grammar- 
made-easy; but at such easy going pace that he never 
seemed to get there. After an accumulation of text books 
upon this subject equaled only the pile of silver dollars in 
the United States treasury there is a tendency to return 
again to the former course. It is not thought a waste of 
time to teach pi inciples whose full meaning may not be at 
once understood, but is sure to reveal itself in due time. 

As often happens there is a mean course. The analytical 
method and the constructive method may well be employed 
alternately. In either case much practice is necessary for 
any valuable results. We are ready to praise the teacher 
who by either method impresses a school that there is a cer- 
ta'n business value in correct speech: that words have a defi- 
nite range of meaning, and each at times is more appropri- 
ate than any other : that there are also laws for the ar- 
rangement of words in such manner as to produce the best 
effect ; and that there is a value in felicity of speech where 
"words fitly spoken are like apples of gold in pictures of sil- 
ver." Whoever produces an active interest in these princi- 
ples is successful in teaching grammar. But we are sure 
that it needs animated teaching to make an animated school, 
and that a hundrum grammatical exercise is the most un- 
satisfactory product of pedagogy. 

The most recent line of criticism claims that there is an 
excess of attention to arithmetic. The study of fractions it 
is said exhausts the principles of the science. All the rest of 
arithmetic consists of the application of these principles to 
various kinds of problems, which can be learned as required 
in the course of business. And the study can be abridged, 
they say, to give room to natural history or geometry. The 
student of geometry however soon needs an acquaintance 
with square root, without which his progress comes to an 
end. Such a course leads therefore to a smattering of two 
branches, rather than a thorough acquaintance with one. 



12 

The names of leading educators give an air of importance to 
such statements. But plain people know that the responsi- 
bilities of business are sufficiently exacting without requir- 
ing the learning of its clerical details at one and the same 
time. 

There are complaints that reach us from near home to the 
effect that the mere mechanical labor of performing the re- 
quired number of examples is often too great for the aver- 
age pupil's strength. Such complaints have been too fre- 
quent to be wholly without foundation. Yet the fault is so 
rare that the committee are inclined to look on it with in- 
dulgence. Some schools are dull even under a good teacher. 
It is a pleasure to see a live school, — a pleasure to observe 
a rate of motion that is visible at once, — a pleasure to see an 
effort that tries the full measure of strength. And all these 
pleasures are usually to be had in any of the three depart- 
ments of our grammar school. There is perhaps a peculiar 
fitness in speaking here a few words concerning the Princi- 
pal of that school. It is no secret among those that for a 
long time observe him at work in the school room that his 
faculty for. gaining a boy's confidence and for maintaining a 
continued interest in school work make his qualifications 
somewhat exceptional. And we hope that the town may 
continue to receive the benefit of his services for years to 
come. 

The music department of our school work is producing 
good results. The study has been made a part of the work 
of every school from the lowest to the highest grade and the 
pupils have taken it up during the past year with much en- 
thusiasm. 

By its study two objects are gained — it gives the pupil 
a pleasant relaxation from the monotony of their other 
studies — and at the same time enables them to become fa-, 
miliar with the elementary principles of music and to make 
a practical use of their knowledge. If the parents would 



13 

visit the schools and listen to the singing of their children, 
it would require no argument to satisfy them that the mon- 
ey appropriated for this study is well expended. 

The High School this year is interesting. Mr. Baker, 
the new Principal is doing satisfactory work, and in all re- 
spects exercising a salutary influence. The assistant is also 
a hard working and painstaking teacher. We believe not 
without reasons for confidence that the school will make at 
the end of the year a good appearance in its daily studies as 
well as in its graduating exercises. 

It is true of the state at large and of Ipswich in particu- 
lar that the High School ante-dates the Primary. The High, 
or as it was long called, the Grammar School, is now ap- 
proaching its two hundred and fiftieth anniversary : and, it 
may be noticed, the town in establishing it did not wait for 
orders from the General Court, but supplied voluntarily its 
own want of the means to prepare boys for Harvard Col- 
lege. The state however took the first step toward estab- 
lishing free public schools of a lower grade. We find the fol- 
lowing in the records of the year 1656. "The Selectmen taking 
notice of an order of Court, which orders the Selectmen to 
take care for the education of children, have agreed it shall 
be published next Lecture-day, intending it shall be diligent- 
ly put in execution." It is evident from this record that the 
town willingly obeyed the order. And so general was the 
willingness to comply with this requirement then as well as 
for many years after, that the state interfered but little 
with the local management of the institutions. Of late 
there has been a tendency to emphasize the central authority. 
Perhaps there has been a reason for it in the growing dif- 
ferences of towns, and the prevailing character of the popu- 
lation. Our attention is called in various ways to the claim 
that our common schools are sta^e schools and the inference 
that must follow therefrom that the school committees are 
state officers, whom the state allows the towns to elect. 



14 

On this principle is based the recent proposal that the state 
shall collect a uniform school-tax, to be distributed again to 
the towns in proportion to the number of school children in 
the several places. Hence also the effort to secure legisla- 
tion which shall require the possession of a certificate from 
a board of State or County Examiners, as a condition of 
teaching in the public schools at all. 

The history of our Grammar School Fund has some 
points of interest, some for encouragement, and others for 
warning. And the present is a suitable time to place before 
the town a brief account of it. On the 1st day of the 9th 
month, 1642, "It is granted that there shall be a free 
school. " This school was endowed a few years later 
through the efforts and gifts of Mr. Robert Payne and others, 
supplemented with the gift by the town of a large tract of 
land in what is now Essex, and five * 'discreet and faithful 
persons" were appointed trustees to hold and manage the 
same for the maintenance of the school. This land in Essex 
was almost immediately leased to John Cogswell Jr., and 
the lease is substantially in these terms : This indenture 
made the 16th January, 1650(-51) between Daniel Dennison 
and others and John Cogswell Jr. witnesseth that said Den- 
nison and others have demised, granted and to farm letten, 
all that parcel of land commonly called The Neck, be} r ond 
Chebacco River, to the said John Cogswell Jr. during the 
space of one thousand years from date hereof to be fully 
complete and ended : paying therefor £4 in butter and cheese, 
£5 in beef and pork, and £5 in corn at current prices: pro- 
vided it shall be lawful for Cogswell to discount so much of 
the yearly rent as shall be at any time charged upon the 
land for town's rates, but not for country rates, or ministry 
maintenance. And if the rent be not paid they may distrain 
and in lack of sufficient distress they may reenter and poss- 
ess. A 

This lease has been in operation for two hundred and 
forty-one years. In the course of that time several contro- 



15 

versies have arisen, and been settled. The first doubt was 
as to the amount of strip or waste that the tenant might 
commit. This was soon decided. The lessors on the 19th 
December, 1651, gave him an additional indenture wherein 
they declared their intent he should improve the timber 
thereupon being at his own liberty and pleasure, and 
that he should not be liable to be called to account for any 
strip or waste of house or timber now or hereafter to be up- 
on the premises during the whole term of one thousand 
years. 

Up to the 1683 the first gift made by Robert Payne had 
not yet been recorded in any public register. Thereupon he 
gave a deed of confirmation of the two acres of land with 
the house and school-house thereon, and at the same time 
made over his whole right and interest in the premises for 
the use of the school to the rest of the committee lately chosen 
and yet remaining and their successors, as any shall be taken 
away by death or any other way removed, so as to be inca- 
pable to aet, and debarring his natural heirs from making 
any legal claim to the premises. 

By the terms of the lease John Cogswell had the right to 
discount the rent to the extent of his town taxes on the 
school lands. But 1710 he with the other tenants, "being 
entered to have rights in the three-fifths of the dividable 
lands with others," obliged themselves, their heirs and suc- 
cessors to pay all town taxes proportionally as other inhab- 
itants are by law obliged. 

About the 1720 the town set up the claim that the trus- 
tees had been given only a life estate in the premises, from 
which assumption it followed that they had no right to 
lease for one thousand years, but only during the term of 
their natural lives, or of that of the last survivor, and that 
their lease was therefore void. And the Selectmen assumed 
for a while the duties of the trustees against their protest. 
The tenants used this action as an excuse for refusing to pay 
the rent. There appears to have been also an attempt to 



16 

/ 

A 're-enter and possess," but it failed, like a recent claim set 
up by the town to Eagle Hill. There was a period of uncer- 
tainty however down to 1756 when the General Court by 
Statute provided that the four feoffees therein named should 
be a self-perpetuating body, and that the three oldest 
selectmen should ex-officio be added to their number : and 
that every trustee must be an inhabitant of Ipswich. 

In 1765 another act substantially the same was passed 
and limited to twenty years from 1766. In 1786 the act 
was made perpetual. By its provisions the feoffees may 
lease their lands for a period not exceeding twenty-one 
years. 

A case decided in "1844 concerned the alleged right of the 
tenants to deduct from the rent the amount of town taxes. 
But it has already been seen that this right was relinquished 
in 1710, and the decision of the court was given accordingly 
in a judgment for the feoffees. 

In the statute of 1765 and in the last decision of the Su- 
preme Court the original grant of the town to trustees was 
construed to be in fee simple on the ground that early 
grants were accustomed to be made in perpetuity without a 
full legal form ; that it was so understood by the town at 
the time, and by the feoffees themselves; that the lease 
granted to John Cogswell Jr. was made on that assumption, 
and that it was taken for granted in Mr. Robert Payne's 
deed of confirmation. The decision of 1844 also contains 
this language, "It is therefore perfectly clear that the feoffees 
have a good title to the reversion in the premises after the 
expiration of the lease for one thousand years, and in the 
mean time they are entitled to the rents reserved, unless that 
lease has been surrendered: and, if it has, then they are en- 
titled to a present estate in fee, and may recover on the 
count for use and occupation.' ' 

This property is now very valuable. A fair income from 
it would amount to several thousand dollars. But the pres- 
ent lease will not expire until Jan. 16, in the year 26S1. It is 



17 

evident that the discreet men who first received this trust 
had little idea of the future of the country else they would 
not have allowed this large increment of value to accrue to 
individuals rather than to their beloved Grammar School. 
Only the Methusalehs now living can expect to see an over- 
flowing income from this large endowment. But the trus- 
tees appear to have grown wiser by the transaction, for 
when they had an opportunity to lease Little Neck, another 
part of their domain, they limited its operation to sixty 
years. 

The school in all its vicissitudes has been a source of ben- 
efit to the town from the time when Lionel Chute first 
taught the sons of graduates from English Universities down 
to the present, when it is merged into the Manning School, 
to which its income is yearly appropriated. The zeal of the 
fie fathers is a cause of gratitude, and a stimulus to the 
present generation, which finds the conditions for acquiring 
general education so favorable; and it is to be hoped that 
the learning of the schools may be tempered with living wis- 
dom, and wisdom be "justified of her children."

RESERVOIRS. 
One on South Common. 
One in Willcomb's square. 
One at head of Central street. 
One near T. P. Cogswell's house. 
One in Market square. 

One well on Washington street head of Gravel. 
One well in front of P. Ross' High street. 
One well head of Mineral street. 
One well front of | . P. Gr. Clark's, High street. 
One well opposite Graffum's shop. 
Landing S. E. side Choate's Bridge. 
Landing opposite Town Hall. 

The last named landings are on the river, built by the 
town for fire purposes. 

According to a vote of the Town we have purchased 
1500 ft. of rubber lined hose for $900; also 50 army coats 
for the Hook & Ladder men and the hose men of the three 
engine companies for $90. We have disposed of the old 
leather hose that was condemned at a good price, $277.20. 

As there was but $650 appropriated for the new hose 
and coats, you will see we have exceeded the amount $ 62.80 
which we think is for the interest of the town. 

We have had a new bottom put in the Torrent Engine 
as it was necessary to do so or condemn the engine, and we 
believed it was too good to throw away. 

We have caused four holes to be bored in the Hammatt 
street reservoir and have a good supply of water, instead of 
depending on the water from the brook to fill it. 

We would recommend having the suction pipe of the 
Warren Engine repaired at an early date, also having the 
wheels and running gear painted to preserve them. Would 



46 IPSWICH TOWN REPORT. 

also recommend selling the 4 wheel hose carriage of the 
Warren Engine and purchase a modern 2 wheel cart. The 
Hook and Ladder truck is very inconvenient and should be 
altered over, so that the heavy ladders can run on rollers 
and the sails, fire escape, hooks, etc., can be carried in a 
cage underneath. 

Would also recommend that the reservoir or well near 
J. F. G, Clark's house have a bottom put in and the sides 
cemented as it is almost useless as a reservoir at present. 

With these exceptions we consider the Fire Department 
and apparatus in good repair.

IPSWICH BOARD OF HEALTH. 
The following report is respectfully submitted: 
The usefulness of the Board appears to have been more 
generally recognized the past year, and citizens generally, 
have shown a disposition to cheerfulh r aid in carrying out 
sanitary measures, and have been ready to avail themselves 
of the assistance of the Board, in endeavoring to suppress 

local causes of disease. 

The number of deaths in 1892 was 102. Infectious dis- 
eases have been for the most part in a mild form. It was 
decided to place placards on all houses where there were 
cases of scarlet fever, or diphtheria, and at the same time to 
leave printed precautionary directions — while especial care 
was taken, that these diseases did not spread to neighbor- 
ing dwellings. This has been accomplished, and in no case, 
have either of these diseases extended beyond the house in 
which it originated, or to which it was brought. 

The number of cases of diptheria reported was twenty, 
with two deaths. 

The number of cases of scarlet fever reported was twen- 
ty-two, with one death. 

The number of cases of typhoid fever reported was nine, 
with one death. 

The number of cases of measles reported was three, no 



IPSWICH TOWN REPORT. 47 



deaths. 

As local guardians of the public health, while we are 
without a general system of water supply, we regard it as 
one of the most important functions of the Board to pay 
especial attention to the water used for drinking and domes- 
tic purposes, and to endeavor to keep wells and cisterns, as 
much as possible, from contamination by cess pools and 
other sources of filth. While many of our old wells can 
hardly be regarded as free from suspicion, we are glad to 
notice an improvement from year to year in the general re- 
cognition of the importance of pure water and in the dispo- 
sition to carry out any directions made by the Board tend- 
ing to accomplish so desirable an object. 

We have promptly attended to all complaints for the 
abatement of nuisances, and in only one case has it been 
necessary to send a sheriff's notice. Some attention has 
been paid to the river banks, and on both sides, more espec- 
ially at what is called South Cove, nuisances have been re- 
moved. 

A dump ha c been established for ashes, tin, and other 
refuse, not liable to become a nuisance, on Washington 
street, and we have forbidden, by notices, the deposition of 
such articles by the roadside. 

A number of bodies of dead animals have been disposed 
of by burial 

Two cases of Glanders in horses have been reported, one 
was killed, and the other died before we had an opportunity 
to take any action. 

A number of cattle have been quarantined, by order of 
the cattle commissioners, until they could be examined by 
their agent. 

The last report of the State Board of Health says, "with 
the possibility of many small out-breaks (of small pox) oc- 
curring in different parts of the country, and also in view of 
theabundant facilities of communication by railway travel, 
it is incumbent upon all our local health authorities to see 
that all the possible protection that vaccination affords 
should be extended to the people of their respective munici- 
palities." In view of this communication from the State 
Board of Health, it is our duty to call the attention of pa- 
rents and officials to the fact, that owing to the compara- 
tive freedom from this disease for a number of years there 



48 IPSWICH TOWN REPORT. 



has been almost complete neglect of vaccination, and that 
probably one-Ii-Jf of the children now enrolled as pupils in 
the public schools have never been vaccinated, while the 
statutes say "the school committee shall not allow a child 
who has not been duly vaccinated to be admitted to or con- 
nected with our public schools." The Board is not respon- 
sible, as they have no authority to require and enforce vac- 
cination unless there should be an outbreak of small pox ; 
we can only recommend that parents, guardians and of- 
ficials should see to it, without delay, that all the pupils in 
school, who have not been, should be protected by vaccina- 
tion, and that the law should be strictly enforced in the fu- 
ture. 

In this enlightened age, we should extend to the children 
the protection which vaccination affords against this dis- 
ease which is particularly fatal in unprotected young per- 
sons, and which maybe brought here at any time from Can- 
ada as it has been in the past. It would hardly seem to be 
possible to prevent cholera from again invading our shores 
with the warm weather Our inland position will be a 
great protection. While trying to prevent the introduction 
of this disease from abroad, we believe with a late authori- 
ty, that the most thorough and perfect local sanitation 
should be required to prevent it from gaining a foothold if 
accidentally introduced.

In presenting our report for the year, of the receipts, ex- 
penditures and financial standing of the town, we deem it 
our duty to recommend certain changes which, we believe, 
will result in lessening the expenses the coming year. 

The support of the Town's poor is gradually increasing 
from year to year, and certain items of expense appear so 
often, such as medicine and medical attendance, more par- 
ticularly the latter, we have placed an article in the war- 
rant authorizing the Overseers of the Poor to contract with 
competent persons for this attendance. 

We also recommend the re-building that part of the 
almshouse, which was formerly used for the insane, the 



IPSWICH TOWN REPORT. 49 



present condition of which is unfit for occupancy. At the 
Annual Meeting we shall present a report of the probable 
expense for constructing the same. 

An examination of the expenses in the different depart- 
ments compare favorably with the past, more especially in 
relation to the appropriations. 

The amount expended for current expenses has been 
about #20 JO, less than last year. 

The expense for street lights has been less than last 
year, and we think that nothing can be said but in praise in 
which they have been cared for. 

You will notice that we have made some changes in the 
valuation of Town property, especially in the inventory of 
property at the farm, wnieh we think will meet with a long 
expressed wish. 

The whole number of inmates at the farm the past year 
was 15 ; average number 11 ; the present number 10. The 
balance against the farm is some less than last year, al- 
though we have finished the construction of the well near 
the barn and placed a wind-mill over it and a tank in the 
barn, and other necessary improvements. 

The last note of $800 on the bridge has been paid the 
past year, consequently reducing the town debt that 
amount. 

Circumstances over which we have no control have ma- 
terially increased the expenses of the Highway Department, 
and consequently have exceeded the appropriation . We 
think the improvements made have been appreciated. 

Owing to the large increase in Snow Bills a larger appro- 
priation will have to be made this year. 

The Selectmen estimate that the sum of $8500 will be 
sufficient for the ordinary expenses of the town for the en- 
suing year, also $2000, for taking up two notes that are 
past due on the cemetery.

The past school year has been uneventful and we count 
its uneventfulness our good fortune. Excepting a run of 
scarlet fever, which happily did not become epidemic, though 
it caused the suspension of the Candlewood school for some 
weeks, and the ravages of the grippe in the Argilla and 
Willowdale districts, no prevailing sickness has interfered 
materially with general school work. Some changes have 
been made in our corps of teachers, but the Dennison Pri- 
mary is the only large school which has suffered a change of 
administration. To fill this vacancy, Miss Emma G. 
Blanchard was transferred from the Wainwright school, 
and the high standard attained under Miss Crosby's skillful 
hand has been fully maintained. Miss Susie H. Potter, the 
assistant at the North Primary was placed in charge of the 



I 

I 

( 



Wain wright, and Miss E. Mabel Adams, formerly of the Vil- 
lage school, was assigned to the vacancy in the North. 
Both these teachers, we are pleased to see have done excellent 
work. Miss Cora H. Jewett retired from the Candlewood 
school with the close of the school year, and Miss Susie C. 
Cobb of Salem has been doing good work as her successor. 
Miss Sadie W. Matthews has been transferred from Willow- 
dale to the Linebrook district and the vacancy thus made 
was filled by the appointment of Miss Mabel R. Willis, who 
promises well in that position. At Linebrook alone, re- 
peated changes seem necessary, due largely to the peculiar 
environment of the school. A local dissatisfaction with the 
teacher, which is in great danger of becoming chronic, has 
hampered the work of several teachers in rapid succession, 
and greatly impaired the efficiency of the school. 

The policy of allowing the teachers a day in each term for 
visiting the schools of other communities has been continued 
with gratifying results. The teachers invaribly return from 
these excursions to the famous schools of Quincy, Chelsea, 
Cambridge and elsewhere with fresh interest and new de- 
vices, and twice at least these visits have established the 
fact that our schools are maintaining a really high stand- 
ard. In one instance, a primary principal satisfied herself 
that the fifth grammar grade in a large Cambridge school, 
corresponding nearly to the second intermediate grade in 
our system, was not as far advanced in arithmetic and 
geography as her first primary class, and in the other the 
principal of our grammar school saw for himself that a 
recent graduate from his tuition was easily maintaining the 
first rank in her class in the Lynn high school. All things 
considered, we may well believe that our local school system 
is accomplishing substantial and valuable results. Never- 
theless defects are apparent, and improvement in many re- 
spects may be made. 

In our district schools, we must confess, are the least sat- 
isfactory portions of our local system. For various rea- 



8 



sons they are not accomplishing all that we could wish for 
the children of the various localities, in which they are loca- 
ted. The radical trouble is that generally they are too 
small. The average membership for the year at the Apple- 
ton has been 6; at the Argilla 10; Candlewood 15; Village 
15; Willowdale 16; Linebrook 18. 

These few scholars are often of widely different ages, and 
are distributed through all the grades from lowest Primary 
to second Grammar. There can be no class system in con- 
sequence, as in larger schools, and only a few minutes can 
be given to any one recitation. The healthful stimulus 
found in graded schools is almost wholly lacking and many 
children advance more slowly than they would under more 
auspicious circumstances. With a single exception, these 
schools do not share in the musical instruction, which is one 
of the most valuable elements in our schools, and even if in- 
struction were given, little profit would result in most cases 
in the smaller schools, because of the impossibility of attain- 
ing any good musical effects. 

The salary of twenty or even thirty dollars a month for 
ten months, is not tempting. It secures only young and 
totally inexperienced teachers, who welcome any opening 
which will give them practical experience in school affairs, 
or teachers who have little fitness for their profession. 
Much poor teaching results, frequent changes are unavoid- 
able and continuity of work is impossible. The isolation of 
these schools from the center and from each other renders 
proper super vission difficult, and makes them practically 
independent, and each going at its own easiest pace and 
covering its own ground. But is there any remedy for these 
evils in a town like ours, where so many groups of families 
with children of school age, live in these isolated neighbor- 
hoods? In the case of the Grape Island school, no improve- 
ments on present conditions seem possible. The Linebrook 
school is so remote that it is practically eliminated from our 
inquiry. In the case of some of the other schools, consider- 



9 



able improvement might follow from the extension of musi- 
cal instruction, and with provision for more helpful and 
systematic supervision. 

But the most satisfactory solution and one which is en- 
gaging much attention in many quarters, lies in the aband- 
onment of the local school buildings, and the transporta- 
tion of all the children by the town authorities and at pub- 
lic expense from their homes to the schools in the center. 
This s\ r stem is being worked successfully in a number of our 
suburban towns. It has its disadvantages, in the case of 
very young children, it must be confessed, but there are 
great compensating advantages, which demand careful 
consideration, in the skilled teaching and the more stimula- 
ting environment. 

The committee made some inquiries of parents, in one 
neighborhood, as a preliminary to attempting this exper- 
iment, and has seriously considered adopting this measure 
in yet another district. As yet, the scheme has not taken 
definite shape, but great possibilities of good seem to lie 
within it. 



THE INTERMEDIATE AND PRIMARY SCHOOLS. 

This group of schools is of the highest importance. 
They contain a large proportion of our school popula- 
tion, 493 out of 817. Some admirable work is being 
done. In scope and quality the training given compares 
well with that of some of our best. Some re-arrange- 
ment however is imperatively needed, and will be forced 
upon us ere long. 

The problem of room for the primaries is again a 
pressing one. At the Dennison, the average during the 
winter term has been so large, that the natural increase 
in attendance during the spring and summer terms is 
likely to bring more children than can be accommodated 
with comfort. 



10 



At the North Priraar\^ school, the prospective difficulty is 
yet more serious. The present enrollment is 112. The av- 
erage attendance for the year, including stormy days and 
pleasant days alike, has been 79. Within a few weeks a 
hundred children will be in regular attendance here. There 
is absolutely no accommodation for such a multitude, and 
Ofi sanitary grounds alone, it is to be hoped that no attempt 
will be made to seat this number in so small a room. It will 
be impossible for the two teachers in charge to maintain the 
standard of the school under such pressure. 

The Cogswell Primary with its enrollment of 74 already 
taxes the resources of the principal too heavily, though the 
school is making excellent progress. The spring influx will 
probably carry the enrollment and the average attendance 
much above any reasonable limit. The Wainwright as well 
is full already, with its enrollment of 68. 

At the same time, it happens somewhat singular^, that the 
Dennison Intermediate is the only one of the three schools 
of that grade which has a full quota of pupils. The Cogs- 
well and the North are very small and remain so, despite 
our effects to promote as many as possible from the prima- 
ries. 

A partial and temporary relief may be found in the ap- 
pointment of pupil teachers to assist the Cogswell and 
Wainwright principals. Some of our bright High school 
graduates, it is hoped will esteem this opportunity of gain- 
ing practical experience, valuable enough to lead them to 
A^olunteer for this service, without remuneration. The ex- 
perience thus gained will be of great value in settling the 
question, whether the aspirant for this profession has that 
in-born aptness for the fine art of teaching, which is the 
indispensable pre-requsite to success, and will determine 
the wisdom of a Normal course, or further preparation for 
this work. 

But other measures must soon be resorted to. More room 
must be provided, or some re-arangement made. Shall this 



11 



be attained by building another primary building in a thick- 
ly peopled section and establishing another school, as in the 
case of the Wainwright a few years ago? As an objection 
to this, it is to be observed that the multiplication of small, 
independent schools is very undesirable. Already, our town 
primary schools, and the intermediate as well, are far from 
attaining a uniform standard, or covering identical ground. 
Our grading is far from being as systematic as it might be 
and should be. In the absence of any official and thorough- 
going supervision, our schools gradually drift apart, as 
the skill of a particular teacher, in her preference for partic- 
ular studies, or her ambition to excel, are not counterbal- 
anced by some common make weight. Inevitably there is 
no small variance in the advancement of pupils of the same 
grade in different schools. It may be objected again, that 
our three principal buildings in the centre of the community, 
the Cogswell, Dennison and North, are old and inconvenient, 
although in fair condition at the present time, and that it 
is a policy of doubtful expediency to build small new build- 
ings, or additions to the old buildings, and thus perpetuate 
our present loose system, and postpone longer than is wise 
the adoption of a comprehensive system for many years to 
come. 

Is not the time ripe to consider the centralization rather 
than further multiplication of our schools? Other towns of 
equal size with ourselves are building large new buildings and 
gathering a number of schools of related grades under a sin- 
gle roof. In this manner the schools can be conducted more 
economically, as there is reason to believe, and certainly 
more systematically. A large new building or buildings in 
some central location with accommodation for the entire 
Primary and Intermediate school population, both in town 
and outlying districts, or a considerable portion of it, seems 
the final settlement of all our difficulties. There are difficul- 
ties attending it, indeed, but there are great advantages in 
the systematic grading, the more thorough instruction, the 



12 



more rapid promotion and the longer period of schooling 
likely to result from this system. Such a school could be 
administered with much less expense than our present sys- 
tem entails. 

In the five out district schools, which might be despensed 
with under this system, 62 pupils on the average are being 
taught at an expense, for teachers' salaries, fuel, care and re- 
pairs of buildings, approximating to two thousand dollars a 
year. Half that sum would secure better results in the way 
suggested. The running expense, bill for repairs, etc., would 
be largely diminished. 

The general compactness of the school population apart 
from the out districts, renders the plan easily feasible in 
town and some method of transportation might readily 
bring the out district pupils to the door. The re-arrange- 
ment of pupils thus made possible in the Intermediate grades 
would accomplish at once a more satisfactory- and more 
economical administration of these grades, than is possible 
under our present local arrangement. 



HIGH AND GRAMMAR GRADES. 

The Grammar school has maintained its own high stand- 
ard of efficiency, and the increase in size, which necessitated 
another room a few years since has been steadily main- 
tained. Under the skilled oversight of the principal, an ideal 
unity of endeavor has prevailed in the several grades. The 
teachers have labored in season and out of season to secure 
the best possible results, and their success has been most 
gratifying. 

The High school, too has made evident progress toward 
our ideal. Under the firm, but judicious guidance of the 
principal, that lax and demoralized tone, which characterized 
the school when his administration began, has given place 
to a more vigorous and healthful school life. More and bet- 
ter work than for years past has been accomplished. The 
recent introduction of theme writing and declamation is an 



13 



admirable addition to the course of study. We regret that 
the facilities for illustrative experiment, in the chemical and 
physical departments, are so meagre that the value of the 
scientific courses is greatly impaired. We hope that the 
school will soon gain such an acknowledged preeminence, 
that a larger number of our youth will recognize the value 
of the education here imparted, and that very speedily we 
may find a rising tide of interest in the higher education in 
the community, and a regular outflow of students into the 
colleges and technical schools. One additional year of 
special study, supplementary to the regular three years' 
course, is amply adequate to fit any student for our higher 
institutions, especially when a college preparatory course is 
chosen at the very beginning, and the few years' study is 
systematically arranged. If, year by year, our students 
were entering college or technical school, a marked enthusi- 
asm, stimulating and pervasive, would soon lift our whole 
school system into more vigorous life. 



MUSIC AND DRAWING. 

Four years ago the study of music was introduced as a 
part of the regular course in all our schools. Time enough 
has elapsed to prove the entire success of the method of in- 
struction adopted, and to demonstrate the value of the study 
itself. In every grade, now, with the possible exception of 
the High school, music is studied regularly and with in- 
creasing enthusiam. 

In the Primary and Intermediate grades, a surprising de- 
gree of familiarity with the elementary principles is manifes- 
ted, and within a few years, as the pupils of the lower grades 
advance, the music course in the higher schools will become 
one of the most characteristic studies, and at graduation, 
every student with any natural taste for music, will be able 
to sing moderately difficult music at sight. 

The moral and aesthetic benefit accruing during school 
days, and the whole after life is of the highest moment. 



14 



To this study, it is much to be desired that drawing 
should now be added, either in every grade at once, or 
beginning gradually in the lower grades and advancing reg- 
ularly with the pupils until it has gained place in the whole 
course. The education of the eye by this study should go 
hand in hand with the training of the ear by music. Educa- 
tion it is conceded shall be symmetrical. The fullest de- 
velopment of the mind is attained only through the agency 
of each and every sense. 

Our aim as educators, is to be not cramming the mind 
with facts, but training its various faculties to quick, varied 
and accurate use. 

Eventually, we trust, when Mr. Manning's bequest for an 
Industrial Education Fund becomes available, practical ex- 
periment will be made in this direction. The suggestive re- 
port of Dr. Chad wick to the British Association, quoted 
briefly by Dr. Buchanan in the Arena for February, 1893, 
seems to demonstrate that great improvement in intellect- 
ual power is thus attained as well as manual dexterity in 
various sorts of handiwork. As a preliminary to our antic- 
ipated addition of Industrial Education, it would be wise 
and timely to determine upon some course of Drawing, and 
begin instruction with the next school year. 



A WORD WITH PARENTS. 

In closing our report, a few words with parents may not 
be amiss. While the Board of School Committe welcome at 
all times any suggestions or complaints that parents may 
wish to address to them, it deprecates any direct interfer- 
ence on the part of parents with the teachers. Too easy cre- 
dence is given, we can believe, to stories of undue favorite- 
ism, or of underserved discipline or unwarrantable neglect, 
that a child may bring home. Our teachers are carefully 
selected, their faithfulness and discretion are always to be 
presumed, and in any issue between a teacher and a pupil, 
the teacher will be found almost invariably in the right. At 



15 



the least, every teacher has reason for asking a fair hearing 
before being condemned. Sharp and hasty judgment of a 
teacher's course, even in the family, only widens the breach 
between teacher and scholar, and often unsettles the disci- 
pline of the whole school, and greatly increases the teacher's 
burden . 

Complaint reaches us from time to time of the amount of 
study out of school hours. In particular cases, it may be 
that too large demands are made upon the evening and 
hours that should be spent in sleep, and that some relief is 
rightly asked as a condition of unimpaired health. 

Such cases may well be brought to the notice of the com- 
mittee. But in the main, we incline to the belief that the 
grievance is exaggerated. If the spare moments in school 
were improved, and the time devoted to study at home were 
actual^ spent in hard, uninterrupted work, there might be 
a large saving of home study. Many hours are fritted away 
in a show of study in the family circle, or with a school- 
mate. A due amount of home work, we esteem of real ser- 
vice, as an offset against the pernicious habit of spending 
the evening on the street, or in unprofitable amusements. 
Too many of our children are found on street corners, and 
in idle and dangerous company, acquiring a habit of rough 
speech and boisterous behavior, if nothing worse. 

Apart from this, can it ever be insisted on too strenuously, 
that school life is short and that in these few choice and for- 
mative years, school and study should have the first place 
in the thought of pupil and parent alike, and should occupy 
as large a portion of every day as is consistent with health? 
Frequent request is made of this Board or the teachers that 
children be excused from the memorizing of standard poems. 
Just here, however, we believe that our schools are doing 
some of their most valuable work. An acquaintance with 
the best literature, attained in the regular round of school 
work, from the primary grade upward, is of the highest 
value in offsetting the trashy prints which confront our 



16 



school children everywhere, and cultivating a taste for the 
best authors. In mature 3 T ears, the children who are being 
drilled so thoroughly in this study will be more than thank- 
ful for the broad and accurate knowledge of the purest 
English they are now acquiring.

The Barnicoat Engine has been repaired at an expense 
of $83.57, and could have been worked- at the late nre i 
there had been hose enough. The running work of the 
engine should be painted to preserve it. The old suction 
hose of the Barnicoat was sold for $1.85. 

The Warren Engine has been thoroughly repaired and 
painted at an expense of $102.10. 

The old Hook & Ladder Truck has been made over with 
more modern improvements, and is as good as new, at an 
expense of $382.00. The town raised $400.00 for that pur- 
pose. As the old extension ladder was used up, we have 
purchased a new and better working one at an expense of 
$80.00. 

The well on High street near the house of J. F. G. 
Clark has had a bottom put in at an expense of $79.78, as 
the town raised $100.00 for this purpose we have kept 
under the appropriation. The reservoir at this date is full 
of water. 

At the late fire the Neptune Engine was badly burned on 
one side which will need fixing, and with the exception of 
this we consider the fire apparatus of Ipswich in good con- 
dition.

IPSWICH TOWN KEPORT. 59 



Report of the Board of Health. 

The Board of Health respectfully submit the following 
report. 

The whole number of cases of contagious diseases re- 
ported to the Board for the year was forty-eight, of which 
five were of diptheria, nineteen each of scarlet fever and 
measles, and five of typhoid fever. They were mostly in a 
mild form. Only one death occurred from them and that was 
a case of malignant diphtheria of the worst type, in the fam- 
ily of Mrs. White in Lord's building on Market street, The 
board at once saw that extreme measures must be resorted 
to to prevent the spread of this disease and they at once 
quarantined the building placing a guard on duty day and 
night until all danger was over, and the building thoroughly 
fumigated, and by their prompt action a serious epidemic 
was prevented. 

In regard to the sanitary condition of the town we 
would say that taken all in all we have no fault to find, the 
people generally have complied with the requirements of the 
Board, and in no case where we have ordered a nuisance 
abated have we had any trouble or had to resort to legal 
measures, on the contrary we note with satisfaction the 
growing desire on the part of the public to co-operate with 
the Board in securing the sanitary welfare of the town. 

Before closing we would call your attention in a few 
words to the contagious diseases existing amongst the cat- 
tle and what has been done in regard to the same. The 
selectmen appointed Edward Dole as Cattle Inspector and 
the Board of Health appointed him as their agent also, giv- 
ing him full power to act for them, and that he has faithfully 
attended to his duties the following report wall show, he re- 
ported to the Board that he made a personal examination 
of all the cattle in the town and wherever he had found anv 
which in his opinion were sick with the disease known as 
tuberculosis or any other contagious disease, he had at once 
ordered them isolated from the other cattle, notiying this 
Board of his action, who promptly notified the State Cattle 
Commissioners who came and examined them, and by their 
orders seven cows were killed which upon a post-mortem 
examination proved they were diseased with tuberculosis,

their carcasses were properly buried. There are still several 
more cows under observation waiting further developments. 
In closing the Board take this opportunity of thanking 
the citizens of the town for their co-operation with them in 
their endeavors to abate all nuisances and in all matters 
pertaining to the onerous duties. 

Respectfulfy yours,

Lyman H. Daniels j Health 



There are a few points in this report to which we wish 
to call your attention. On page 8, the item in the report of 
the expense of the water investigation which reads, "Daniel 
Russell, supplies for committee," should read, "Daniel Rus- 
sell boring wells and supplies." In the highway account, 
on page 21, the heading, "Repairs on Hovey street," should 
read, "Repairs on Hovey and East streets." It will be seen 
also that the appropriations for the Highway department 
were exceeded some $1600. The reason for the extra expense 
was that the snow bills were $900 more than was anticipa- 
ted, and the building of County street, as ordered by the 
County Commissioners, cost about $850 for which no 
appropriation had been made. A road machine was also 
purchased for the town. 

The police account is $280 more than last year, but the 
reason for that, to some extent, was the extra men and time 
called for by the disturbances on High street and the at- 
tempted prize fight at Little Neck. 

Those who by sickness or misfortune are unable to care 
for themselves have always been used generously by the town 
and this year, owing to the condition of the times, calls for 
aid have been a little more frequent, and the amount expend- 
ed is somewhat larger than usual, but we are assured that 
the money so expended will not be begrudged by the people 
of Ipswich. 

In the current expense account the report of the water 
committee increased the usual expense but we feel that the 



IPSWICH TOWN REPORT. 61 



that the recent vote of the town shows that the money is 
believed to have been well spent. 

Attention is called to the account of the town farm. Mr. 
Daniel S. Applet on, who for a number of years was the able 
and efficient superintendent at that institution, resigned 
early in the year and the service of Mr. Charles Sylvester 
were secured for the present year. It is our opinion that the 
farm has been well managed by him, and we believe that a 
careful examination of the figures, and a comparison with 
previous years will convince you that the opinion is well 
founded. The whole number of inmates at the farm the past 
year was 15, the present number 9, the average 11. The 
average expense per week for each inmate was $2.72. 

In regard to the bridge at the foot of Green street, we 
would recommended that it be replaced by an arch bridge, 
and that Water street should also be put in proper con- 
dition. 

The work of assessing taxes was given extra attention 
this year and quite a gain was made in the valuation, but more 
work in the same direction is needed and we would recommend 
that the town authorizes a new and thorough re-valuation 
for 1895. 

The recent fire, and the heavy snow storms, will call for 
an additional appropriation this year. We estimate that 
the sum of $8000 will be necessary for the proper care of the 
highways for the coming year and$8500 for what is known 
as the ordinary running expenses which does not include the 
school department. 

The balance against the town last year was $5507 while 
this year it is some over $7000. It should be taken into 
consideration in connection with this, that we have paid out 
$900 more for snow bills than was appropriated, $850 for 
County street, $1500 for the water investigation and $2000 
for the addition to the town farm, a total of $5250 more 
than we were allowed money for, and yet have only made 
an increase in the balance, of about $2000. 

Our relation with the other town officials have been verv 
harmonious and pleasant, and we have received their hearty 
co-operation toward making our work successful. Town 
Treasurer Condon has been awake to the necessity of 
prompt collection of taxes, and to his efforts we are indebted 
for a ready supply of money to meet all bills.

While other towns and cities around us have felt the 
business depression quite heavily, Ipswich has been remark- 
ably fortunate, and the close of the year finds the town 
affairs in what appears to us to be a prosperous condition.

In the course of the present year, one of our associates, 
Wesley K. Bell Esq., has been removed by death. In age, 
and in continuous term of service, he was the senior member 
of our Board. For thirty years, he has served the Town as 
a member of the Committee, and prior to this, several years 
as a teacher. 

Every teacher now in our schools has been elected during 
this period. Great improvements in the school buildings, 
surprising advance in methods, and noticeable broadening 
of the course of study have found place, as well. Mr. Bell 
had his part in all this. So rich an opportunity of useful- 
ness and influence, rarely falls to the lot of a citizen in any 
communitv.

Report. 



The School Committee in making a detailed report of 
the condition of the several public schools are pleased to be 
able to report that good work has been done in them during 
the past year, and that most of them are in excellent condi- 
tion. 

The school work has gone on without friction and there 
has been no break except that caused by contagious dis- 
eases, which the committee in conjunction with the Board 
of Health have endeavored to keep under control. 

In the early fall cases of small pox were reported in vari- 
ous parts of the Commonwealth and the committee felt 
called upon to enforce the statute concerning vaccination, 
which had lain dormant for several years. 

Upon an investigation, it was found that not more than 
one-half of the pupils attending school had complied with 
the provisions of the Statutes in regard to vaccination, Sec- 
tion 9, Chapter 47 of the Public Statutes reads as follows: 
l 'The school committee shall not allow a child who has not 
been duly vaccinated to be admitted to or connected with 
the public schools." 

Notice was given to the scholars of this requirement and 
we are pleased to report a very general compliance with the 
law. 



10 

One of the things to be regretted is the disposition 
shown by many parents to allow their children to attend 
school only the legal time, and then call for a certificate to 
permit them to work in the mill. 

It is undoubtedly true in some instances, that the earn- 
ings of these children are much needed to eke out the subsis- 
tence of a widowed and invalid mother, or to assist in the 
support of a large famity with a sick father ; but in too 
many cases it is done out of disregard for the welfare of the 
child and the community, and for the gain to be obtained 
from the labor of the child. 

The result is to substantially terminate the child's educa- 
tion, for, if he is forced back to the school again by the 
requirements of the statutes he will accomplish but little. 
He has lost his place in his class, his mates have made great 
progress in his absence, his ambition is gone, he becomes dis- 
couraged and in a few months he will reach the age when he 
is beyond compulsory attendance and he drops out with just 
education enough to read a few simple sentences and 
write his name. 

By the provisions of Chapter 348 Acts of 1888 and 
Chapter 352 Acts of 1892: "No child under thirteen years 
of age can be employed at any time in any factory, work- 
shop or mercantile establishment and no child under four- 
teen years of age shall be employed in such places except during 
the vacation of the public schools in the town where he resides, 
unless the person or corporation employing him possesses 
and keeps on file a certificate from the school committee 
showing that he can read at sight and write legibly simple 
sentences in the English language and has attended some 
school during the year next preceeding such employment 
for at least thirty weeks." 

* This legislation is in the right direction, but it would be 
better if the child could be kept in school until he was four- 
teen years of age. 



11 

MUSIC. 

The study of music has been continued during the year 
with excellent results. The work was carried on under the 
instruction of Mr. E. A. Bradford until the close of the sum- 
mer term, when he resigned and Miss Laura A. Hubbard 
was elected to fill the vacancy. 

Miss Hubbard is a good musician, possessed of an apt- 
ness to communicate her ideas, progressive and enthusiastic 
in the work and has been able to gain the good will and 
earnest attention of the pupils and lead them to good re- 
sults. 

This is one of the most pleasing studies in which our 
scholars are engaged and parents only need to visit the 
schools and hear the pupils drill, read and render their musi- 
cal studies to fully appreciate what is being accomplished in 
this department of school work. All who were present at 
the closing exercises of the Manning Schools last June and 
listened to the rendering of the grand- choruses by those com- 
bined schools, must have been strongly impressed with the 
ability and faithfulness of the teachers, and the capacity of 
the pupils in this branch of our studies. 

It ought to be said injustice to our teachers, that while 
the music teacher lays out the work, and directs how it 
shall be wrought out and drills the scholars for an hour each 
week, that to the teacher of each school is due a large part of 
the credit, for upon them devolves the duty of the daily drill, 
which makes possible such fine results. 



DRAWING. 

Efforts have been made several times to introduce draw- 
ing into our public schools, but the attempts have failed to 
accomplish much because few of our teachers were experts in 



12 

this work, and the most that was done was for the pupils 
to draw a few straight lines and attempt, like the old fash- 
ioned method of teaching penmanship, to imitate some copy. 
The result has been that the pupils did not become interested 
and the teachers soon became tired of the work and it was 
dropped. During the past year, the committee feeling the 
importance of training the hand, eye, taste and judgment of 
the pupils, and knowing that such training would be of 
great benefit to the scholars in after life determined to 
introduce drawing in the graded schools. 

Miss Hattie D. Condon, who has had a thorough drill at 
the Boston Normal Art School and had proved herself to be 
a capable and successful teacher in other places, was em- 
ployed and the supplies' for this study were provided. We 
are pleased to report that she has awakened an interest 
among the schools in drawing and they have worked dili- 
gently under her instructions and have begun to demon- 
strate the success of this studv. It has been well said that, 
"It is hard to bring about a realization of the fact that all 
children of average abilitj^ can learn to draw, that drawing 
is not only for one or two in every school who have a natur- 
al aptitude for it, but that it gives training and development 
that is possible and helpful to all, development in a direction 
that can be followed to the same extent by no other studv." 



PUPiL-TEACHERS. 

Every year the committee have applications from grad- 
uates of our High School for positions as teachers. There 
are usually many more applicants than vacancies. 

In most instances our schools require a person of some 
experience to be able to accomplish much. 
, Many people have an idea that because a young lady 
has graduated from a High School, she must be fitted to 



13 

teach. But it should be remembered that it requires a 
knowledge of the methods of teaching and governing^ as 
well as of the subjects to be taught, to become a successful 
teacher. 

In order to supplement our High School work in 
methods of teaching, we have encouraged graduates 
who are desirous of becoming teachers, to be- 
come assistant teachers in some of our large schools without 
pay and several have availed themselves of this arrange- 
ment to their own advantage, as well as the interest of the 
schools. Miss Hattie W. Brown has been an assistant un- 
der Mr. Horton in the Grammar schools, and Miss Kate C. 
Baker, Miss Mary E. Archer, Miss Lizzie B. Caldwell and 
Miss Edith E. Perley in intermediate and primary schools, 
and the result has been the development of several promis- 
ing teachers. The committee have frequently been troubled 
to find a substitute to take charge of a school during the 
sickness or absence of the teacher. This sj'stem promises to 
remedy that difficulty and benefit those graduates of our 
High school who are seeking such employment. 



TRUANCY, 

The truant officers report thirteen cases of truancy to 
which their attention was called during the year. In several 
instances the}' were persistent cases and required manv 
efforts to get them back to their school work. This was 
accomplished without resorting to a complaint and arraign- 
ment in court. The officers in their report truly say, "the 
wisdom of the statute enactment relative to the truancy of 
children is best seen in the per centage of attendavxe in the 
schools of the town, rather than in the few returns of 



14 

scholars to the school room that are wilful in their persis- 
tence to thwart the wishes of parents and of school officials 
in their attendance at school. The fact that an officer 
clothed with power sufficient to compel the presence at 
school of such as would idle their hours upon the street, has 
a deterring power over many an iirchin who has a penchant 
to avoid the school room, and none are better aware of this 
truth than the children themselves." 



THE UNGRADED SCHOOLS. 

There are seven of these schools, all of which labor under 
difficulties which the graded school do not suffer. 

In several of them the number of scholars are too few to 
inspire much ambition in teacher or pupil. In others, 
having respectable numbers, like Linebrook, Village and 
Candlewood, there are so many classes to be heard and so 
few in a class that the best results cannot be attained. A 
teacher can hear a class of twenty as easily as a class of two 
and there is likely to be much more interest and enthusiasm in 
the recitation of the larger than the smaller class. 

In all of these schools the teachers have labored hard 
and endeavored to make the best of the conditions and the 
result has been generally quite satisfactory. The Linebrook 
with twenty-nine pupils, the Village with twenty-six and 
Candlewood with twenty pupils make a better showing as 
to numbers than for several years. The Applet on School 
was closed during the winter for lack of scholars. 



15 

PRIMARY AND INTERMEDIATE SCHOOLS. 

All of these schools are in excellent condition and will 
compare favorably with schools of like grade in any city or 
town in the county. 

One of the difficulties under which the Primary work is 
now carried on is the lack of school room. One hundred 
and four scholars in the Payne school and an even hundred 
in the Dennison room, are too many for two teachers to 
handle to the best purpose. In the near future the town 
must make provision to relieve the congested condition of 
these schools. Other rooms must be provided and other 
schools established. 

The three Intermediate schools, with an enrollment of 
one hundred and thirty-five pupils have maintained the high 
standard which they have held for many years. Such might 
be expected while the same teachers remain in charge of 
them. The scholars are thoroughly drilled in the work 
required of them and when promotion day arrives are well 
fitted to enter the Manning schools and go on with their 
studies there. 



MANNING SCHOOLS. 

Two hundred and thirty-nine scholars are enrolled in 
the four schools in the Manning building. One hundred and 
seventy-five in the Grammar department and sixty-four in 
the High school. 

The average attendance for the year in the Grammar 
schools has been one hundred and twenty, and in the High 
school forty-two and two-tenths. 

No change of teachers has occurred in anv of these 
schools during the year and very thorough work has been 
done in all of them. 



16 

The work in the Grammar department is carried on 
with much zeal and the pupils seem to catch the inspiration 
from the teachers and put forth their best efforts. One of the 
features of these schools is the practical turn which is given 
to the teaching. Every new subject and rule is illustrated 
by the teacher in some practical way and the scholar is 
taught to apply it to some problem occurring in every day 
life, and the result is that the pupils are not only being devel- 
oped mentally, but are acquiring and storing up a fund of 
information which will be of the greatest value to them in 
after life. 

The High school, under its present principal, has increased 
its usefulness in a marked degree. Order ha.s come out of 
chaos and work instead of idleness. 

There is not so much spirit and energy displayed in the 
recitation as in some of the other schools, and this arises in 
part from the studies pursued, which do not admit of such 
high pressure recitations. But the aim is to develop and 
expand the mental power's and teach the pupil how to study 
and work out for himself the subjects he is pursuing. 

It is evident that the parents do not fully appreciate the 
advantages and opportunities which this school offers their 
children, for out of a school population of eight hundred and 
fifty pupils only about a dozen graduate from it each year. 

There is an inclination among too many scholars, who 
could easily complete the High school course, to abandon 
their studies on graduating from the Grammar school. 
Others enter the High school only to drop out before com- 
pleting the course. Such boys and girls need some one to 
encourage them to continue their studies. Such encourage- 
ment from their parents would be of great value to 
them later in life and it should be of the kind that would 
lead them to complete the High school course. Such 
scholars are not capable of judging what will be best 
for them and need guidance and control in such matters. 



17 



They will need all the education which they can obtain from 
our public schools, if they expect to compete successfully 
with the great number of young men and women who are 
being graduated from High schools, academies, seminaries 
and colleges every year. 

There is not a subject taught in our schools, whether it 
be language, science, philosophy, chemistry or literature 
that will not be helpful and useful, indeed absolutely neces- 
sary if one expects to acquire a lucrative and honorable 
position in life. Many a boy has learned to his sorrow and 
chagrin, when it was too late to remedy the matter, that 
there are many very desirable positions in the business 
world which cannot be obtained unless the applicant can 
furnish evidence that he is a graduate of some High school 
or other institution of equal standing. 

We cannot impress too strongly upon the parents the 
importance of graduating their children from the High 
school. It will be a legacy for which they will thank you in 
after life.

SOLDIERS' RECORDS, 

At the last annual meeting the town voted that the 
records of Ipswich soldiers, including those of the Revolu- 






IPSWICH TOWN REPORT. 57 



tion, the war of 1812, the Mexican war and of the Rebellion 
of 1861-5 be written, corrected and revised. I have col- 
lected various scraps of information relating to the wars 
previous to the Rebellion, much of which relate to the earli- 
est wars of the Colonies commencing with the Pequot w T ar 
and of services rendered during the earlier days of the Ply- 
mouth and Massachusetts Bay Colonies which can be 
entered upon the records and will add much to the history 
of Ipswich soldiers. It can be done without any additional 
expenditure. I have consulted the Adjutant General of the, 
Commonwealth in regard to the Rebellion records and by 
his assistance as well as the facts to be gleaned from living 
soldiers, I think at the annual meeting in 1896 the Ipswich 
records will be completed. The clerk will find the records of 
the Rebellion a comparatively easy task, while much relat- 
ing to the earlier wars is now lost beyond recovery. I have 
not been able to give the time to the matter during the year 
thatsuch a subject requires, simply because of reasons be- 
yond my control; but I think the clerk of the coming year 
may be able to take the business in hand in earnest. 

Respectfully submitted, 

CHARLES W. BAMFORD, 
Town Clerk.

The Warren and Neptune Companies have been dis- 
banded, owing to our water supply the hand engines were 
not needed. A new steamer has been purchased at an ex- 
pense of $3200 and has proved itself to be as good as the 
best. A new hose wagon has been built with all the modern 
improvements at a cost of $340 which shows for itself. 

Five new ladders have been purchased at a cost of $90 
for Hook & Ladder truck to replace some which were not 
safe for men to stand on while holding hose as it requires 
stronger ladders. 

There is a great need of some new play pipes as the old 
ones which belong to the hand engines are not strong 
enough to stand the pressure from our hydrants, and your 
Engineers would recommend that the town purchase six 
new play pipes and 2000 feet new rubber lined hose, also 
that the town have some system of fire alarm.

60 IPSWICH TOWN REPORT. 



Report of the Board of Health. 

Number of cases of contagious and infectious diseases re- 
ported to the Board for the year was fifty-seven, as follows: 
eighteen cases of scarlet fever, twenty-two cases of diphthe- 
ria, nine cases of typhoid fever, and eight cases of measles, 
and in each case the clerk has notified the School Committee, 
Librarian of the Public Library and the State Board of 
Health'. 

We wish at this point to call attention to a matter, 
which to many may seem trivial, but which to the people of 
the town might prove a serious and dangerous matter, and 
that is in regard to householders reporting contagious dis- 
eases to the Board as called for in our regulations, and for 
which a heavy penalty is attached for refusal or neglect so 
to do. They do not seem to understand that the law re- 
quires them as well as the physicians to notify the Board of 
Health, if they are knowing of contagious or infectious dis- 
eases within their family or house, and here is where the 
great danger lies, as is quite often the case, some families 
where there are several children, some of them are taken 
sick with a mild case of either scarlet fever or diphtheria, as 
the case may be, perhaps they are not sick enough to call 
in the services of a physician or even to be put to bed, and 
the family not wishing to have their house placarded and 
the rest of their children kept out of school, say nothing 
about the matter, and no report comes to the Board, and 
consequently no efforts are made to prevent its spread in the 
schools or neighborhood in a most malignant form, and 
here is where the Board is seriously hampered in their en- 
deavors to stamp out these diseases, and right here we 
would say that our physicians deserve great praise for the 
prompt and faithful care in which they have reported all 
cases coming under their notice, as it speaks well for the in- 
terest in their profession and in the public welfare. 

Now as regards to the sanitary condition of the town, 
we think it will compare favorably with any town in the 
state. We have had no trouble in any matter in which we 
have been obliged to call the attention of the owners of the 
property or the tenants occupying the same, and we wish to

return our thanks to the citizens tor the prompt manner in 
which they have abated all nuisances brought to their atten- 
tion. 

Respectfully yours,

Owing to the extreme drought the past summer and fall 
and laying of water pipes, many of the streets need to be 
re-surfaced to place them in proper condition, we estimate 
that the sum of $8500 will be needed for the repair of the 
highways the present year, with additional appropriations 
for any new work that may be ordered. The County Com- 
missioners were petitioned to straighten and re-locate the 
Rowley road, from the railroad crossing to near Muddy 
river bridge, which change necessitated the covering of the 
water pipes on the new location. 

A system of water works having been introduced, and 
the Fire Department re-organized, we would recommend 
that the town take into consideration the matter of paying 
the members of the department a yearly salary, instead of 
by the hour as at the present time. 

The expenses at the farm have been some larger than 
last year, caused by the addition of new material deemed 
necessary for the proper care and comfort of the inmates. 
Like all hay farms in this vicinity the crop of hay the past 
season was light, and the quality poor; having a surplus of 
unsalable hay, young stock was purchased in the endeavor 
to utilize the fodder to the best advantage. 

The average number of inmates the past year was nearly 1 3 ; 
the cost psr wesk $2.90. Mr. Charles W. Sylvester and his 
able assistant, Mrs. S\dvester, have done everything in their 
power for the comfort of the inmates of the almshouse, and 
the management of the farm in a careful and judicious man- 
ner. 

The roof of the town hall is in a very bad condition, and 
there is need of thorough repairs, or a new roof substituted 
to preserve the building from decay. There seems to be a

loud call from the patrons of the hall for the introduction of 

water, that they may no longer be dependent upon the wells 

of the neighborhood for a supply. 

We would recommend that the matter of repairs and 

introduction of water be referred to a committee to report 

at the adjournment of the annual meeting.
